New Year’s Eve is slowly approaching. This makes it the best time of the year to reward yourself for all the great things you managed to do this year. These seven creative ideas might inspire you during this holiday season.
Get a Mani-Pedi
Chances are that your nails aren’t looking their best during the holiday season and honestly, it’s understandable. December can get pretty chaotic. Between juggling work, family, social life and Christmas shopping, who has time to take care of their nails regularly? So this holiday season make it a priority to go get a manicure and pedicure. You can have that hour or two all to yourself. Turn off your phone and enjoy your pampering time in the salon. You’ll get a chance to relax and your nails will be looking fabulous all throughout the holiday season. How can anyone say no to that?
Go on a Fragrance Journey
This winter try to find your new favourite perfume. Head to the mall and try out as many different fragrances as you like. The holiday season is the best time of the year for buying a new perfume since fragrances tend to last longer in winter. So this Christmas treat yourself with a nice gift such as a new perfume that you will get to enjoy for the rest of the year. A new perfume will make you feel refreshed. It is a great investment overall and you will not regret spending a few extra dollars for something that will last you a long time.
Upgrade your Pajamas Game
Another way you can pamper yourself at this time of the year is by shopping for new pajamas. If you haven’t considered it before, check out some of the silky pajamas at the mall. There is something about silky pajamas that makes sleeping feel like you’re floating in the clouds. They feel cool and so soft to the touch you’ll be able to fall asleep within a few seconds. Consider buying a silk pillowcase as well. It will help you sleep better and more comfortably at night. It will keep you cool, prevent wrinkles and even prevent your hair from getting frizzy. It is also much healthier for your skin because it allows it to breathe during the night. Lastly, consider investing in a pair of cashmere slippers too. You will not regret it.
Make your own festive foods
There are many ways you can make your own festive food and snacks this holiday season while also having fun. You can invite your friends over and organise a cooking competition, for example. Try out many different recipes for various festive cookies and see who comes up with the most creative combination of ingredients. You can even look-up how to create healthy alternatives to holiday favourites if your New Year’s resolution is to try eating healthier. You can also get your kids involved in this holiday cooking. They will learn something new that will be useful later in life and they will get to do something creative by decorating the Christmas cookies.
Do what you love most
Do you have any hobbies that you couldn’t devote time to for a while? Try setting a weekend for only that activity whatever that might be. Get back to your favourite hobby even if it’s just for a day. Or you can set one day of each week for doing only that. For instance, if you love knitting, start making your own mini clothing collection this month. Take one week for completing each piece. Or if you love reading, but you feel like you don’t have enough time, take at least 30 minutes each night to read just a little bit. It doesn’t seem much, but you will get back into your reading habit and notice that you have more time than you thought. On the other hand, you can even discover some new hobbies this year. Go for a hike, try out different dancing classes, and take a cooking class. Do whatever makes you feel happy and relaxed.
Have a beauty day
Yet another way you can pamper yourself and feel fresh for the New Year is by taking care of your skin and hair. In other words, take a day off to have a beauty day at your favourite salon. You can go get your hair done, or even try out a completely different hairstyle. You can also have your makeup done by a professional, or have some new natural eyelash extensions or whatever you’d like to try out from these new beauty trends. Lastly, you can treat your skin with a facial treatment such as a regular facial, acne reduction facial, or a carbon laser peel procedure that will refresh your skin and get you ready for the New Year’s Eve party.
Buy something you really want
And the last one on the list is to buy yourself something that you’ve wanted to get for a long time. Christmas doesn’t have to be just about buying your friends and family presents. You can reward yourself at the end of this year by buying yourself a new handbag, or those shoes that you saw a few weeks ago, or a new coat. These small rewards at the end of the year will inspire you and help motivate you to work even harder next year so you can treat yourself with something nice again.
In conclusion, it’s important to give yourself small rewards at the end of the year. It will make you feel accomplished and you can start a New Year feeling fresh and ready for new challenges that come your way.
